Personal or businees account on PayPal?

Hello everyone,
I’m new to Fiverr and I’d like to know if I need Personal or Business account on PayPal to accept payments.
Any answer would be helpfull.

Thank you for your time.


I think a personal account is all that’s needed, unless anybody knows differently?

You can use a personal account OR a business one, it’s up to you. Most people on fiverr probably use a personal one.

Can I accept payments with personal account?

Do you have a personal account to accept payments? Does it work?

As misscrystal said, personal or business one should do it - I’ve always had a business account.

Good luck! :slightly_smiling_face:

So all I have to do is go to and create an account?

Sorry for asking but I’m new to this and I need some information. Thanks for your answer by the way
